Don Pedro's Jardin: Not an Altar

Drove by Sunset + Coronado in Silverlake/Echo Park borderlands maybe a week ago and saw an elderly Latino man tending to an altar-like structure, and finally made it back today. Turns out it's not an altar, shrine, or memorial, but "Don Pedro's Jardin", a small, well-kept garden with a wooden house-shaped structure as its centerpiece. The house had two signs, two TY Beanie Babies, a lot of Christmas ornaments, and many plants growing up its frame. At the base of the house there was a dish of water as a reflecting pool, as well as a molcajete. Among the flora I recognized was corn, poinsettias, sunflowers, nasturtiums, aloe vera, and roses.
